In addition to regular storytimes on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the Milton Public Library will host programs for children during the week of Feb. 10 to Feb. 16.

The Super Popular, Unbelievable Book (SPUB) Club, a read-aloud group for kids in Grades 3-6, will meet on Tuesday, Feb. 12 from 7:15 to 7:45 p.m. Sara Truog will read a few chapters of a book each week, and the job of participants is to listen while engaging in hands-on activities like Lego building, play-dough sculpting, and Rubik's cube. No registration is required.

In partnership with the Milton Early Childhood Alliance, Feb. 15 will be a Free Play Friday from 10 a.m. to noon for children up to the age of five. Drop by and enjoy puzzles, games, and activities in the Story Hour room.

A “Gross Me Out at the Library” event will be held for ages eight and up on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Does what causes most people to say “yuck” make you say "yes, please?" Then come and explore the science behind the stench of rotten eggs, learn about the layers of skin, and check out a gross book or two to learn more. Various foods will be used in some demonstrations. Registration is required.

Check the library’s web calendar for a listing of the programs offered year-round. Information about and registration for all programs can be found on this calendar at or by calling the library’s Children’s Room at 617-898-4957 during business hours. You can also like the Children’s Room on Facebook and get updates in your news feed.
